WORLD ARCHITECTURE/Guadalupe Valley, Baja Norte, Mexico
BRILLIANT HOTEL CONCEPT: Architect Jorge Gracia, Arq. with collaborators Javier Gracia, Jonathan Castellon, Braulio Lozano and Valerie Peraza teamed to create a modern hotel on a majestic mountain overlooking the resurgent wine producing Valle de Guadalupe outside of Ensenada, BC, Mexico.
Called Endémico Resguardo Silvestre which features independent hillside nodes in sleek minimalist style, was recently named one of the Best Small Hotels in the World by Travel & Leisure magazine for 2012.
Here’s what the magazine had to say: The concept is luxury camping—20 pristine cabins, crisply modern, are poised on a hillside overlooking Mexican wine country. The 99-acre site also includes a swimming pool, a winery, and a restaurant. But the highlight is each cabin (60 x 60 sq. ft), with own terrace and warmed by an adobe fireplace, including views of the famed wine producing valley. Doubles from $200.
